Strength Training for Older Adults

Climbing the stairs, pushing a shopping trolley, getting out of a chair – these activities of daily living like many others require muscular strength. Yet as we age, we lose muscle mass and with it our strength.

This eLearning course has been designed to enhance knowledge on what strength is through understanding how muscles work, the benefits of strength training and how this can be applied to older adults.

The course will take you through a series of lessons, based on scientific research and real world examples including:

  • How muscles work
  • The benefits of strength training
  • Strength training exercises appropriate for older adults
  • An example strength training plan

Strength is a vital component for health and well-being. Strength Training for Older Adults will give you the knowledge and confidence to be able to combat the loss of strength that affects so many older adults and their quality of life.
